The blood blister
under my skin
just shy of my right
pointer knuckle
is gone
I don’t understand
I noticed it when I was fourteen
It had already been there
a while and I just wondered
if it was an eternal bloodstain
Now it’s gone
I’m worried about where
it may show up next
Did it transfer to someone
else or am I about to experience
a terrible bloody accident?
Am I about to become Luke?
Not the cool-hand one, I mean
Luke of the light saber and cloak

I’m worried.


Thoughts of an Introvert Part 2

pain    I’ve found
answers pain
in the morning
yellow streaks in the hip
at night
a dull cement gray
numbing    pain I feel
though I do not feel my right leg
only a smothering gray blob
